NEW YORK -- The Archdiocese of New York says 27 Catholic schools that received heavy subsidies due to declining enrollment will close at the end of the current academic year.

The archdiocese said Tuesday on its website the closures of 26 elementary schools and one high school will affect 3,700 students.Last fall the archdiocese released a list of 32 at-risk schools. Four were saved; the decision on one was postponed.

With both students and teachers dreaming of a snow day, the mayor promised that he would inform the public of snow closures before 5 AM on Wednesday.

That deadline comes as a bit of a set-back for many parents who will be scrambling tomorrow to make plans for childcare, should schools close.
Some colleges in the area, such as St. John’s University in Queens and Stony Brook University on Long Island, have already closed.

While Michael Bloomberg and NY Education Chancellor make up their minds in NYC whether schools will be closed for the kiddies tomorrow, Babble’s got you covered for activities to do with your little ones in the case that schools ARE shut down and you’re left to spend the day with the little ones shouting, ‘Snow day, Snow day!”
